    TimBuk2 was offering messenger bags with canvas panels - sadly, it looks like they've been discontinued

    Nonetheless - I was able to snag one and my sis painted a depiction of the California Bear (from the California State Flag) on it - I love her artwork and I love my latest bag

    I've had a lot of dreams fulfilled in California, thus, I feel good whenever I see my bag - the California Bear only makes me think good things

    Enjoy!

    considerably better than the other one, but truthfully your sister doesn't seem to excel in art.

    But hey, whatever floats your boat :)

    believe me - I would never post anything I even attempted to paint

    that and.... of course I wouldn't post if I wasn't proud of it :)

    She did a pretty good job :) There are a few things I touched up in Ps to show you where she can improve a bit. The snout should be a little longer and fuller and have a black nose. The eye should be a little bit smaller like a triangle on its side almost. And the ears should be a bit rounder. Tell her she did great and to keep painting and studying her subjects for simple shapes to get a good outline. That's great you are proud :) you're a great brother.

    HOLY CRAP!!! Actual constructive criticism about this person's items. It is so nice to see that. I am literally standing and applauding you right now. We could have really used you in the other thread about the laptop.

    LOL Thanks, I actually posted in that laptop thread first before I got here. I sometimes have gut reactions too but I don't post them so harshly like a lot of members do. I take a minute to think about what kind of person is posting (younger, excited, older, newbie.) and go from there. Obviously, both posts were excited enough to upload pics, so it sucks to see members immediately tear them down.
